Going fishing this weekend...
« on: July 05, 2012, 11:51:21 PM »
I am going fishing this weekend to a place called Hatheume Lake. The local fishing mapbook says 3-4lb rainbows are pulled out of there consistently, and up to 10lbs frequently. It is managed as a trophy lake; single barbless hook, limit of 1 fish per day, and you can't keep anything smaller than 20".

So, I plan on taking the camera and hopefully I will have some pictures to post next week. The weather is supposed to be 30, 32, and 35ish so I may not survive. If I do, I will report back.

I plan on taking a few axes as well and hopefully finding a birch tree to bring home for carving handles.

Best of Luck to ya on your trip!
Have a great time!

:D
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Thanks guys. I'll be using a 5 and a 6, and I am bringing a 5 and a 7 for my friend. Not a cloud in the sky today, this Okanagan weather is deadly. See you in a few days.

Good luck!  Be safe.

(And look into some Ash for those handles... I'd personally pick it over birch... Just MHO...)
What if you woke up today, with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?

It was so busy that we had to go with our plan C lake, caught only a few small fish, came home a day early, and I managed to delete the pictures.
